Entry added by: Gareth Rees on Mon 31st December 07, 01:30pm Sighting location: Glasfynydd Forest, Castle Drake, SN 869 246. Sighting date: 31st December 2007
Single Great Grey Shrike showed between 11:35 and 12:53 (still on view when I left). The bird seems to favour low perches (either bare brash or some of the small conifers near the block of half-grown Spruce trees south of the road). Despite at least two other visits this is the first time I have seen this bird since the initial discovery on the 23rd Nov (and suggests this is a different bird to that seen on Carms side of the Usk reservoir between these dates). Also 2 Snipe, Woodcock, 3 Crossbill, Bullfinch, 13 Fieldfare, Goldcrest and 40 Jackdaw,
